Sobre o Evento:


The international conference on “The International Politics of the Globalized  Economy and  Emerging Market Countries, to be held on the 19th and 20th March

2015, at the University of São Paulo is  one of the key initiatives  undertaken by experts in international political economy, under the aegis of a cooperative scientific program between the Niehaus Center for Globalization and Government, at Princeton University, on one hand , and on the other  the University of São Paulo , represented by the Institute of International Relations - IRI, the Center for Public Policy Research – NUPPs, and the Institut of Advanced Studies - IEA. Participants are scholars from Brazil, the US and Europe, whose contribution to an essentially trans-disciplinary area  such as international political economy is widely acknowledged, including political scientists, international relations experts and economists. The Conference will focus on the transformative processes engendered by globalization and its impact in the emerging countries. The Conference aims at providing a thorough discussion about alternative frameworks to anchor a theoretically informed empirical research on the emerging market countries in the post-2008 scenario.

From this perspective, it will endeavor to provide a sounder base for the analysis of the current and prospective standing of Brazil in the international system.
